Meet Author Rhonda Riley on September 16, at Headquarters

August 28, 2013

The Alachua County Library District invites the community to an evening with Rhonda Riley, author of the critically and popularly acclaimed The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope, on September 16, at 6:30 p.m., at Headquarters Library, 401 E. University Avenue, Gainesville. Riley will read from her work and have books available for sale and signing.

 “The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope is strange and powerful,” said best-selling author Lauren Groff, “A hybrid work that’s part Alice Munro, part Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and entirely, marvelously, itself. In her debut novel, Rhonda Riley has written the most resonant and touching love story I’ve read in a very long time.”

Riley attended the University of Florida and received a Master of Fine Arts in fiction writing. She now lives in Gainesville.
